We are selling our house in Wokingham. Will my conveyancing practitioner need to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Wokingham I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wokingham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
